news" with brian williams. >>> good evening. they now estimate over 67 million of us watched the debate in denver last night and what people saw was a highly energized, motivated and combative mitt romney sharing the stage with a subdued and lackluster president obama. what they saw was mitt romney on his way over the course of 90 minutes to scoring a clear and consensus victory in what will be the first of three meetings. between these two men. for romney, today felt like a new chapter. here's a look at the crowd waiting for him tonight in virginia. while the president today said some things he was expected to say on that stage last night. we begin our coverage with nbc's andrea mitchell. andrea, good evening. >> good evening, brian. the president showed up today armed with attack lines against mitt romney a day late. trying to regain his footing after a rocky debate performance, the president today at an outdoor rally seemed everything he was not last night. >> the man on stage last night, he does not want to be held accountable for the real mitt romney's decisions and what he's been
. this is nbc nightly news with brian williams. >>> good evening, if you were among the over 60 million of us who watched the presidential debate, then you know we saw two things that night, really, an energized mitt romney, and lackluster president obama, and tonight it appears what happened that night has the numbers on the move there was new polling when they opened up against the president, the numbers show the race trending, tightening, trending towards romney, at least right now, we begin with peter alexander, traveling with the romney campaign. >> reporter: brian, good evening to you, a romney adviser tells me that the campaign is stronger, that the candidate is increasingly confident. he tried to draw a sharp contrast on the issue of national security. with just 29 days to go, following the last debate, the race is quickly tightening, but remains volatile. the polls had different results. the latest poll shows romney leads, now up four points between the likely voters, but a new gallup poll shows the president up by five. looking to capitalize on his momentum, today, romney tried to f
to vote for? these are telling me that the tactics that president obama is using, talking about diners, bayonets and big birds, they're rubbing people the wrong way. in part because they want to focus on jobs in the economy, which is this big, darker issue that the country is facing right now. it's worrying people a lot. and so, the idea that he can talk about things like the binders comment, which is really just a play off a comment that mitt romney made during the presidential debate, where he talks about his desire to hire a lot of women. and it's not helping him. i think that's reflected in the poll numbers because you're seeing right now romney is tied, or seems to have a kind of momentum moving into the time week. that's just what pollsters are saying. i think democrats feel that this will help particularly with women voters, because they make up the majority, and if they can kind of put forward this argument that mitt romney wants to take away somethings that are very important to them, then they can get the edge amongst that party leck rate. which in a very close election can b
on the u.s. presidential debates. then to leaders of the chilean student movement, which is the largest protests since the days of augusto pinochet a generation ago. >> we saw several riots, the biggest one of the mall last year published of them all last year, over a million people in the streets. within six months of student strikes. many students in high school lost their academic year. >> i think our biggest challenge is we don't only need the democratization education, but the democratization of the entire country. >> all of that and more coming up. this is "democracy now!," democracynow.org, the war and peace report. i'm amy goodman. president obama and republican challenger mitt romney are heading to long island today for their second presidential debate. tonight's debate is at hofstra university, just three weeks before the general election including both foreign and domesticy issues in a town hall setting the kids undecided voters in the audience the opportunity to question the candidates. the final debate will be next monday in florida and will focus on foreign policy issues.

has coined romnesia. he should keep using it. sometimes the republicans have had such great success with turns of phrase such as swift voting, the quick one off to think a certain way about a certain person. romnesia is the perfect way to describe exactly what afflicts mitt romney when it comes to his own record. day we have an interesting round of good news for the president which is he has gotten endorsements today from the denver post, the tampa bay times. the salt city tribune. yes, the salt city tribune, an utah paper endorsing obama. that's good for him. he seems to have stopped the bleeding according to a lot of polls, however he has got to go into the next debate, the next set of questions and smile. we need a president who sat there and smile, we need the president reassure us. when we see him smile everybody is happy. he has a number of things he needs to talk about. the supreme court, climate change, iraq and the fiscal cliff. he has not talked at all about the fiscal cliff. it is coming. whoever is elected will be totally responsible for that. he went on "the daily thoug
think marriage solves gun violence? we are women and you will hear us vote. a race talk that asks if talking about race really helps at all. it's a complex world out there. we need someone to lead it. >>> good morning. i'm melissa harris-perry. at approximately 6:15 a.m. eastern time, former u.s. senator george mcgovern passed away while in hospice in sioux falls, south dakota. he was 90 years old. an early opponent of the vietnam war he was, the nominee for president in 1972 for democrats. he lost in a landslide election to republican richard nixon. in a statement, the mcgovern family said "we are blessed to know that our father lived a long, successful and productive life. advocating for the hungry, fighting for peace." mcgovern long will be remembered for his unwavering opposition to war and war is where we begin this morning. today we're taking you back to june 28th, 1914. yes. june 28, 1914. that was the day that a foreign emissary was assassinated while on a diplomatic mission in sarajevo. that set off a chain of events that led to the largest global conflict the world had e
there was a gun around. not that he had used it. so a gun enhancement, mandatory gun enhancement from the judge that entered the sentence said it was an outrage. it was unjust. but 55 years. this is the kind of human toll in this country. we don't just need to legalize marijuana, we need to end drug prohibition, just like we ended alcohol prohibition and treat drug use and abuse as a public health and education issue and get it entirely out of the criminal justice system. [cheers and applause] we have the highest incarceration rate. we have 5% of the world's population and 25% of the world's prison population. we have more people in prison and in jails in this country on drug offenses than western europe has in their prisons and jails on all offenses. this has to end. we the american people need to come together, right, left, it doesn't matter about partisanship. we need to demand immediately an end to this insane war on drugs.

tonight. -- mitt romney. >> night's debate will be a town hall format. many folks tell us they will tune in for at least a little bit. four years ago as type of debate was the most popular. >> going into the second debate, mitt romney has momentum on his side. a campaign that has raised $170 million, inching closer to the president's 180 million. >> his campaign is about smaller and smaller things and our campaign is about bigger and bigger crowds fighting for future. >> tonight's town hall format could keep both candidates from being overly aggressive. >> some consider it more of a show. >> it is like to looks good on tv. -- who looks good on tv. >> the latest polls show the race nearly deadlocked. this time advisers say the president will be more aggressive. >> he knew when he walked off the stage. he also knew as he watched the tape of the debate that he has to be more energetic. >> who has the advantage? mitt romney has already held 23 town hall events. the president only one. we will see if it makes a difference tonight. >> while you watch the debate tonight, we invite you to share
headquarters." i'm kelly wright. >> i'm jamesy colby. great to have you with us. the fox news poll may be due to an increase in support among florida's female voters, which in the last month alone has climbed eight percentage points, a huge boost for the governor as both candidates shift their focus to the sunshine state ahead of the third and final presidential debate. carl cameron live in boca raton before it will take place. carl, good to see you. what do you expect? >> it's worth noting that one of the internal numbers in that survey said that when it's comes to who can handle the economy best, mitt romney is leading in florida. it matches his margin, seven points actually, goes well beyond that margin, and explains a great deal about his popularity here. not the case in ohio where the president has a slight advantage, both if the fox poll as well as who can best handle the economy. that dominated the debates up until this point, gave mitt romney the first boost in his widely acclaimed victory in the first debate, but hasn't pushed the needle in the last two debates, the vice presidential
in to "fox and friends" when arnold swarsnegar joins us live >> steve: over the weekend 2000 americans were killed in afghanistan. the president talks about on the stop his greatest achievement and that is the killing of osama bin laden. here he is in nevada over the weekend. >> al-qaida is on the path of defeat and osama bin laden is dead. sounds like he dropped the gm line. >> gretchen: the greatest accomplishment is the killing of osama bin laden so the president is making a lot of that. but what is the real story on the ground? for example what really happened in libya, terrorist attack that killed our u.s. ambassador and is al-qaida on the surge and far from dead now? could it be that we are facing a tougheruation before president obama came in office with regard to al-qaida. >> eric: they said it was a preplanned terrorist attack that killed the ambassador and three other necessary benghazi. the problem is why? why did they make the attack. is it because president obama is going over. gnc. >> he said yesterday and no other than nevada, and las vegas where he was four hours after the a
his approach on foreign policy, focusing primarily on u.s. relations in the middle east. the g.o.p. contender portrayed the president as naive in his dealings with our enemies inand enempty with our friends. >> i know the president hopes for a safer freer and more prosperous middle east applied with us. i share this hope. but hope is not a strategy. it is our responsibility and the responsibility of the president to use america's greatest power to shape history not to lead from behind, leaving our destiny at the mercy of events. >> eliot: romney went on to explain what he would do to assert american leadership. >> romney: i'll put the leaders of iran on notice that the united states and our friends and allies will prevent them from acquiring nuclear weapons capability. i'll support the libyan people's efforts to forge a lasting government that represents all of them. and syria i'll work with our partners to identify and organize the members of the opposition who share our values, and then ensure that they obtain the arms they need. finally, i'll recommit america to the goal of
from planning an anti-muslim internet video to blame the u.s. intelligence community an had been trying to blame republicans for cutting security funding for the state department. all of this has quickly become a very difficult defense indeed for the obama white house. there'll ice revealing the state department has no shortage of money to bolster security whenet chose to do so. the congressman says the state department has in fact $2.2 billion in funds allocated to upgrade security at embassies and consulates around the world. he claims the state department funds haven't been spent for political reasons. >> 2.2 billion in discretionary reprogrammable money that wasn't used. the fact is they are making the decision not to put security in because they don't want the presence of security. diplomatic place because they wanted to be invisible. lou: despite the fact congressman issa made his comments yesterday on "face the nation," when asked to comment on his assertion earlier today, the state department wasn't prepared. a spokesperson would not answer. telling fox news "i will take this qu
frequently on numerous media outlets and has written for quite a few of the major u.s. newspapers in the area or in these areas of his expertise. he is extremely knowledgeable man who has seen things happen and comments on them in, okay, in my humble opinion in a very reasonable and accurate way. he'll be followed by dr. robert freedman who is the peggy mire how far pearlstone professor of political science at baltimore hebrew university and visiting professor of science at johns hopkins university. he has been a consultant to both the u.s. department of state and the central intelligence agency, and he is the author of four books on soviet foreign policy and is also the editor, has been the editor of 14 books on israel and middle eastern policy. and then our third speaker will be dr. stephen blank, he is the strategic study institute's expert on soviet bloc and post-soviet world since 1989. he is the editor of imperial decline: russia's changing position in asia and co-editor of "the soviet military in the future." and he will -- the last speaker is dr. ariel cohen, my colleague here at heri
even you would admit it was not the optimal response, at least to the american people as far as us all being on the same page. >> here's what i'll say. >> yep. >> if four americans get killed, it's not optimal. we are going fix it. all of it. and what happens during the course of the presidency is that the government is a big operation. at any given time, something screws up and you make sure that you find out what is broken and you fix it. >> information coming out about the attacks is no less confusing now. several reports seem to correspond ob rate thorly accounts of the attack. an account, i should note, they have since distanced themselves from. adding a twist to the story, friday, anonymous officials accused the chairman of the house of endangering several libyans who have been working with the u.s. by not giving their names when he released 166 pages unclassified libya documents. heading tomorrow night's foreign policy debate are, i have to say, more confusing to me as a consumer of news than they have ever been. we talked about this early on. i will put myself in the category o
and his use of performance-enhancing drugs. but today the accusations became quite costly. >> how the allegations pushed armstrong out of the top spot of his live strong foundation, even cost him a major sponsor. the long and controversial ride for lance armstrong has taken a dramatic turn. the champion cyclist and cancer survivor stepping aside as the chairman of the foundation and wildly popular livestrong brand to support cancer services. a statement from armstrong on the organization's website reads in part, to spare the foundation any negative effects as a result of the controversy surrounding my cycling career, i will conclude my chairmanship. nike announced today it will take his name off of its workout facility at corporate headquarters and end the relationship of more than a decade. a company press release says, due to the seemingly insurmountable evidence that lance armstrong participated in doping and mislead nike for more than a decade, it is with great sadness that we have terminated our contract with him. nike does not condone the use of performance-enhancing drugs w
whether they used glue to help players get a grip on the ball. a sticky situation for the san diego chargers. >> shep: first, two hours to go until the final face-off between president obama and governor mitt romney. in boca raton, florida, tonight's topic, foreign policy. they said the president would be the favorite, analysts said. that was before the attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi that killed the ambassador to libya and three other americans. since then the president has been slipping in the polls. look at the latest survey here in florida. a crucial swing state. last month, president obama had a nine-point advantage on foreign policy among like ri voters, now it's down to one point. that is a statistical tie. then the state of ohio, obviously another key battleground state. president has lost six points on foreign policy there but his lead is still outside the margin of error. among likely voters nationwide there is a new post poll that shows the president's lead on handling international affairs has dropped from seven points to three points, a statistical tie. tonight
was used to kill agent brian terry but it took the spanish language news network to reveal that the walked guns were also used if you recall the horrific 2010 massacre of mexican teenagers in the border city of juarez. they broke into a birthday party and started firing and before it was over 14 innocent boys and girls dead and 12 more rounded. according to uni vision, three of the heavy weapons used in the bloody murders were linked to fast and furious. while the notorious gun walking operation played a role in that and other terrible crimes inside mexico it had nothing to do with the death deuce morning a border patrol agent onng of tuesday morning. >> investigators are look into the possibility that it was a tragic accident. the result of friendly fire. >> it was a fog of war incident that led to border patrol agent nicholas ivy's death. deadly confusion in the darkness. >> we were approximately two miles south of where agent ivy was shot and killed. we are in some thick foliage right here and just showing you how difficult it is to actually pick up illegal aliens when they are walking
